( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Curious; as it happens I had to do this for a project I was working on some months back, and came to the same conclusion as ikegami. My code reads thusly (copied and pasted):
open( *Parse::RecDescent::ERROR, '>', \(my $parse_error) ) or croak("Error: unable to redirect SDTERR."); $Parse::RecDescent::skip = ' *\x{0} *'; $::RD_ERRORS++; $::RD_WARN++; $::RD_HINT++; my $parser = Parse::RecDescent->new($grammar) or die("Bad grammar! +");
I can assure you that does actually work for me (perl 5.8.8, P::RD 1.94). My best guess is that your use of local on that open call is maybe creating problems?

The dependency on P::RD internals always bothered me as well, but I never got around to figuring out a better way to do this.

Cheers, Tim

Update: Yup, turns out if you remove that local then it works:
use strict; use Parse::RecDescent; sub parse { my ($grammar, $str) = @_; open(*Parse::RecDescent::ERROR, '>', \my $error) or die "Cannot open in-memory filehandle: $!"; local $::RD_ERROR = 1; local $::RD_WARN = 2; my $p = Parse::RecDescent->new($grammar) or die "Grammar is invalid"; my $x = $p->start($str); defined $x or die "CAPTURED: $error"; return $x; } print parse('start: /foo/ | <error>', 'fo'), "\n";
